Today’s best deals include Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro at a new Amazon all-time low, plus AirPods Pro from $195, and Anker’s latest sale. Hit the jump for all that and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro hits Amazon all-time low

Amazon offers Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro 2.3GHz/16GB/1TB for $2,449 in both colors. That’s a $350 savings off the regular price, $50 less than our previous mention, and a new Amazon all-time low. The entry-level 512GB model is also currently $300 off at $2,099. That matches our previous mention and the usual discount we’ve seen in 2020.

There’s up to 1TB worth of SSD storage with today’s sale. You’ll also find the usual four Thunderbolt 3 ports, 16GB worth of RAM, and a redesigned Touch Bar with physical escape and power buttons. It’s arguably the best content-creation machine on the market today if you’re in need of a portable design. Check out our hands-on review for additional details.

AirPods Pro with ANC, more start at $195

Best Buy offers Apple’s AirPods Pro in certified refurbished condition for $195. Originally $249, we’ve seen these popular earbuds trend around $235 recently. Prefer new condition? Verizon Wireless currently has the best price out there at $220.

AirPods Pro delivers a refreshed take of the popular original version, now featuring active noise cancellation, tapered silicone tips, and a water-resistant design. Apple’s H1 chip ensures you have fast connectivity and up to 24-hours of battery life. Our Jeff Benjamin agreed in his hands-on review, noting that AirPods Pro “sound amazing, they’re uber-portable, come with great battery life, and feature incredible Active Noise Cancellation.”

Anker’s latest sale

Following Anker’s big Back to School sale on Monday, the popular accessory maker is back with a fresh batch of deals at Amazon. Headlining is the PowerExtend USB-C Power Strip for $50. Regularly $70, like when we featured it in a recent Tested with 9to5Toys, today’s deal represents one of the first few price drops we’ve tracked so far. This power strip offers a compact and forward-facing design that includes three outlets, two USB-A ports, and a USB-C PD port. You can count on 2.4A charging speeds from the former and 45W on the latter. 

Apple prev-gen. Smart Keyboard Folio at $150

Amazon is currently offering Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio for its previous-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro at $150. Down from its $199 going rate, today’s offer is $10 under our previous mention and a new all-time low. If you’re rocking the previous-generation iPad Pro and still haven’t paired it with Apple’s official Keyboard Folio, then this deal gives you a great chance to finally do so. It ditches Bluetooth in favor of a built-in Smart Connector and magnetically snaps onto the back of your tablet. In between typing sessions, it can fold into a cover to keep your device safe, as well.

Save $240 on Arlo’s 3-Camera Ultra System

Woot is currently offering the Arlo Ultra 4K 3-Camera Security System for $560. Delivery will run you $6 otherwise. Typically fetching $800, it’s currently down to $780 at Amazon with today’s offer saving you 30%, beating the all-time low there by $108, and marking the best we’ve seen to date. Arlo’s high-end Ultra cameras sport 4K HDR recording alongside a 180-degree field of view and an outdoor-ready design. This package includes three of the HomeKit security devices, allowing you to surveil both the front and backyard, as well as somewhere in your house. Integrated spotlights are also brought into the mix, and there’s auto zoom and tracking to round out the notable features. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.
